2022 Sao Paulo Grand Prix
11-13 November 2022
It’s been an enjoyable week at the McLaren Technology Centre, with a feel-good performance at the Mexico City Grand Prix giving everyone an additional boost as we push towards the final straight of an intense 22-race campaign.
There’s nothing like a good, old-fashioned charge through the pack to energise and invigorate, and the team has spent the last two weeks turning over every stone at the factory as we attempt to maximise our package in the final two races, starting with this weekend’s São Paulo Grand Prix.
“The team are looking forward to the race weekend at the Autódromo José Carlos Pace. It’s an interesting track with banked corners, the famous Senna S, camber changes and undulation, so it will be great to see the new cars on track and see what overtaking opportunities arise.
“It is also a Sprint weekend, which adds extra excitement for the fans and the teams. It comes with some challenges that we must prepare for, such as one less practice session and looking at what spares we need at the track with the increased risk of damage.
However, it also provides an opportunity to pick up some vital extra points. It should provide some good entertainment for everyone watching.
“As we head into the final two races of the season, and with it being a double header, we need to keep our heads down and give everything we’ve got.”
WHAT THE STATS SAY
Brazil is one of those races where everyone has their own favourite memory.
You might be of the vintage who favours Emerson Fittipaldi’s win in 1974, our first at the Brazilian Grand Prix. Or perhaps you prefer one of the four Alain Prost victories in the 80s? And we already know plenty of you would select Ayrton Senna’s famous first home win in 1991.
